Profile: Gearrin is a serviceable setup man but not an ideal closer. The main trait holding him back is his 8.4 strikeouts per nine. Most closers now have a K/9 north of 10. The past two seasons, he has kept his walks under three per nine. Additionally, his career ground ball rate is over 55%, so he limits the homers allowed. Examining the 30-year-old’s career, he has a ton of ups and downs with no clear rhyme or reason for the changes. Gearrin’s not going to be pushing for the closer’s role based on talent alone. He is going to need Mark Melancon, Hunter Strickland, and Will Smith each to get injured or be completely unproductive to get consistent save opportunities. (Jeff Zimmerman)

The Quick Opinion: Gearrin's a serviceable reliever, but too many talented pitchers stand between him and the closer's role in San Francisco.
